Worst

The food at this restaurant was pretty decent but the service was the worst I have experienced at any restaurant. The manager seemed to run a one man show...he also waited tables,...

Editorial review from Citysearch 9/26/2013

The Best Indian Restaurant in the vicinity, in every way. The food is authentic and fresh. The environment is soothing. Tasteful music is piped. Place is clean and attractive. Bathrooms are always very clean. Service is the best, fast and curteous.\r While going on Orchard lake we found this restaurant and tried. The waitress was very pleasant and brought ice cold water immediately. Menus were brought promptly and order taken.\r Appetizers were plentiful and tasty. We never had this good Tandoori chicken at any restaurant before, it was moist and flavorful. The waiteress was prompt and checked on our needs frequently. She removed the empty dishes frequently. The dishes that we tried were prepared as each one of us had requested(there were 10 of us). She exactly knew who had ordered what and the spice level for each of us.\r We were so impressed that since the first time, we have been back with different guests to House of India several times. Each time, we have been very satisfied.\r I have hosted 3 events at home for 50 or more people and House of India has provided us with the best service and food at a very reasonable price. My guests have been very impressed and happy with House of India at Orchard Lake road. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/29/2012

This place is horrible, from the service to the food. Our waiter was young, inexperienced, disorganized and slow. We started with their version of a chili tempura which was not bad. However, the cilantro/mint sauce was obviously old and discolored. We had the shish kabob which one would assume is whole chunks of lamb, not the ground lamb that came out. It tasted of organ meats and had a putrid smell, we sent it back. The waiter did not appologize or ask us if we wanted a replacement, I guess he was used to having food sent back. The table near us told the waiter that she was allergic to onions. Their food came out covered in onions and when they sent it back, it still had onions on the bottom and they sent it back again. We also had their butter chicken which cost $13 and came in a very small bowl with mostly sauce that tasted like canned tomato sauce with butter. There were mysterious black particles throughout the sauce? Even the rice was a very small amount! The garlic naan had freeze dried garlic chips instead of fresh garlic. Avoid this place at all costs! more

The worst service ever...avoid at all costs! 5/14/2009

The food at this restaurant was pretty decent but the service was the worst I have experienced at any restaurant. The manager seemed to run a one man show...he also waited tables, seated people and took care of the billing. Needless to say there was a long wait for the food to arrive. He also managed to get our order wrong... and was confrontational and downright accusatory and rude when I brought this up. He told me I had never asked for those things... and this is when I had 2 witnesses who heard me. Anyways, on my way out i told him that i was disappointed by this sort of behavior on his part especially since the restaurant business is part of the service industry. At this point he accused me of having an attitude problem. During the meal I had to ask for refills of water, condiments like chutney numerous times... which he never did get to the table. Needless to say I will never go to this restaurant again, and will do my best to disseminate this information to others so tht they arent subject to such humiliation. Pros: mediocre food Cons: rude staff more

Bad reception 9/15/2008

I have never seen something like that, the service was unbelievably awful, The waitress checked on us after more than half an hour sitting there without being offered even a glass of water. When the first waitress showed up and we asked a question about the food she couldn't speak English very well and she asked us to wait for somebody else to wait on us. After 15 minutes more waiting we asked for the manager. Manager showed up after 5 minutes and without asking us what the problem was, tried to get our order. I start complaining about long waiting and not offered any drink or water, he shouted and asked the first waiter, who was passing around, if what we're saying was true. ( As though we were lying ). We couldn't stand it anymore and just left the place while the manager was watching us without a sign of regret or shame. Pros: didn't fnd any Cons: bad service more

severe gastrointestinal problems- Owner Won't Address 4/28/2008

On our last visit my son & I got terrible gastrointestinal problems after eating. We were frequent customers, as the food is delicious and reasonably priced. Also the waitstaff USED TO be friendly. This time the waiter was snarky and rushed, even though the place was empty. By the time we got home we both had severe (and I mean disgusting and SEVERE) problems and fevers. The owner refuses to address the issue. We had nothing else to eat, so I am confident this food was the cause. I have never been so sick and miserable. The manager/owner was very rude when I called to point out the problem. I am taking the situation to the County. The food may be delicious but it certainly isn't worth feeling like you are going to die for 2 days. Pros: Delicious Cons: Severe Gastrointestinal Discomfort more

Change in Ownership = Bad News 1/11/2007

This place has always been reliable for inexpensive, down-home Indian food. In 2006, ownership changed hands and wow ... lots of changes, most of them bad. The food is still good - in fact, maybe even a bit better than it was. So that's nice. But the prices skyrocketed - honestly. Every single entree, especially the vegetarian ones and including the lunch buffet, increased in price $2-$4. The service used to be warm and friendly - but none of the old servers remain. They've been replaced by a group of very haughty men. The best things about this place - the simple food and friendly service - are now gone. more
